Leanne Marshall continues to follow her very feminine and beautiful vision; the already expected flowy silk dresses didn’t disappoint …with a light pallete that embraced pale rose, off white and celestite blue, Leanne, the Season 5 winner of “Project Runway”,  allowed herself the luxury to add structured and delicate coats to her S/S collection.

demOO parkchOOnmOO s/s 2017 with gazeLLe paulo




Simplicity was the center point at the Demoo Parkchoonmoo fashion show which was inspired by the concept of airiness and Demi’s own patchwork print paintings. As always, her industrial references comes wrapped in the functionality of a design. It felt easy, light, organic…and to be also simplistic, it was just beautiful !!

antonio lopez cocktail party at the leslie lohman




host Robert W Richards with guests at the Polaroid set up stage




me and Snoogy Brown

I attended the opening reception party for the El Museo del Barrio for ANTONIO LOPEZ: A Photo Cocktail Party. It was a pop-up installation at The Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art’s satellite space, The Prince Street Project, celebrating the 1979 legendary party hosted by Antonio Lopez and his creative partner Juan Ramos at New York City’s Robert Freidus Gallery. The event was hosted by Cynthia Powell and Robert W Richards, and attendees revived the scene atmosphere when Antonio and Juan invited party-goers to pose for a large-format polaroid camera and the images were immediately displayed on the gallery walls. I loved the photo I took with Snoogy Brown. Today is the last day of this exhibit, if you want to know a little more about this iconic fashion illustrator. The show, although small, is marvelous and inspiring….and yes my photo is there on the wall somewhere !

“Midnight of the Secret Garden” theme set the tone for the Michael Costello Spring 2017 who started the show with his signature style dresses: double thigh slights, lots of sexy lace and décolletage. The green and dark gowns were rich and perfect for the red carpet.  Tyson Beckford walked down the runway announcing Costello’s new menswear line. The crowd loved him…and his burgundy suit!

patricia field artfashion at howl! haPPening gaLLery









No doubt that the legendary stylist Patricia Field can throw one hell of a party / fashion show!! Even though she decided to close her famous boutique – keeping her business activities only online – leaving all her followers in shock, Patricia still very much remains a force of inspiration and reference in the fashion industry. One of the strongest elements of her success is caused by her ability to spot fresh and real talent; the Patricia Field fashion show yesterday at the Howl! Happening Gallery showcased the faces who are representing her brand at the moment and for quite some time: Ben Copperwheat, Jody Morlock, Tom Knight, Suzanne Mallouk, Kyle Brincefield, Suzan Pitt, Scooter LaForge and Iris Bonner. Some of their works are above in a speed photo way…to become more familiar with their work click on the links of their names.

The crowd was colorful and filled with socialites, fashionistas, artists and clubland fierce faces….I had a blast!!

the apostolos mitropoulos mykonos store






*Brazilian actor Pablo Pereira, moi and the gorgeous Dimitra Giannatou who helped us at the coolest store in Mykonos

I was already familiar with the work of Greek designer Apostolos Mitropoulos through the legendary stylist Patricia Field. So, it was only natural to stop by his store in Mykonos to check his recent collection, and indeed it was one of my highlights of my trip to Greece.

Definitely, Apostolos has the speed, vision and talent of a mature designer who knows well his clientele and where to take his brand in a world platform. His prints are a strong representation of his work; very urban and strong but not too overpowering. Playful bijoux are a must just as an simple accessory for the day, or worn in large quantities for the night. I bought a great hat for my friend Scooter LaForge.

So believe me when I say, that you must stop at his store to take something special and extremely fashionable from Greece. The lovely and stunning Dimitra will help you with all your fashion needs. She was just super helpful with us. The “Apostolos Mitropoulos Underground ” Mykonos store is located at Kouzi Georgouli Str. in Little Venice. (phone:2289 078160)
